Focus on Autism: Read these blogs.
Moms spill it all on life
with beautiful children with special needs.
When they speak, I listen because
their voices are important to hear.
Check out these awesome blogs below:
Eloquently written by Miz KP, the mother of Angel, a handsome 5 year old boy, SailingAutisticSeas.com provides insight into one family's journey through the sometimes smooth and sometimes tumultuous seas of autism.
Her blog includes: posts on every day life, such as visits to church or to the dentist; guest posts by other parents of children with autism; reviews of autism-friendly movies and Broadways plays; and thought-provoking posts on autism statistics and preparing for IEP meetings.
I can say more, but Miz KP says it best: "I know in my heart that autism is not a life sentence. Angel is still my son and I love him dearly…. He is not a label…. I created this blog because I believe that it will give me an opportunity to share my experiences with other parents who have children with special needs. I believe that parents learn best when we can share what we know and ask each other questions."
Sailing Autistic Seas also features an up-to-date Special Needs Events & Seminars calendar as well as an Autism Apps list, providing an important resource for parents.
